George Zimmerman surrenders, is back to prison (UPDATED)

UPDATE: George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer charged in the Florida killing of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin, returned to jail on Sunday after a court revoked his bond and ordered him to turn himself in to authorities.

Zimmerman arrived at the Sanford County jail in Sanford, Florida, shortly after 1:40 p.m. traveling in a white mini-van accompanied by sheriff’s deputies and his attorney, Mark O’Mara.

On Friday a judge revoked Zimmerman’s $150,000 bond, posted in April while he was awaiting trial, after prosecutors accused him of withholding one of two valid passports and said his wife did not tell the court about money donated for his legal defense.

The request from prosecutors came in a new motion filed in the murder case, which sparked civil rights protests across the United States and prompted widespread debate over guns, self-defense laws and U.S. race relations.

The motion was filed ahead of a hearing in which Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. was due to consider motions to keep much of the evidence in the case against Zimmerman under seal pending his trial, on a charge for which he faces a penalty of 25 years to life.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, prosecutors alleged in the motion that Zimmerman’s wife knew about the donations her husband had collected through a PayPal account for his defense, but failed to mention the money at his bond hearing.

Zimmerman, 28, is charged with shooting and killing the 17-year-old Martin as he walked through a gated community in Sanford, Florida, near Orlando, February 26.

Police initially declined to arrest Zimmerman, citing Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” self-defense law, but the special prosecutor who was subsequently appointed charged Zimmerman with second-degree murder.

Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty.
